Derek Piotr "Hutan"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Next month, Polish-born, New England-based sonic adventurer Derek Piotr will self-release a new LP called Raj, and has offered up album track "Hutan" to sereve as the upcoming record's first taste. Beginning with a bit of electro-acoustic sound manipulation, Piotr presents a pattern of bell-like hits, which he occasionally breaks up with a single chord and doses of manipulated static before locking into a driving, machine-led beat. While "Hutan" is not exactly a guaranteed floor filler, the track is an intriguing teaser that explores the more abstract and adventurous side of electronic dance music. After giving the tune a listen, interested parties will find the full tracklist and artwork for the forthcoming Raj LP after the jump.
